On The Bridge(A Steampunk Poem) - Poem by Kostas Lagos

Walking on the bridge
over the dark fierce river
staring at the old building
lit by neon lights;
clouded with smoke
crawling out of chimneys
grey as stormy clouds.
I 'm standing there, open my flask
and take a sip of rum.
Zeppelins floating through
the air above me
and I 'm jealously watching them
passing by, leaving me there
with a half mechanic dog
lying on my feet.

    this sounds more like Back To The Future ** with zeppelins mentioned! ! ! but, ok, half mechanic dog touches on the topic futuristic IF you refer to a half-robot-half-flesh-and-blood dog.

    ** movie title from 1980s

    favorite lines:

    clouded with smoke

    Michael J. Fox! What a movie! All three of them.
    Don't feed the dog!
    Thank you
